"Most artists are very insecure people": DiS Meets Jane Weaver

Jane Weaver spoke to Dom Gourlay on Drowned in Sound this week about her (amazing) new LP Modern Kosmology.

As ever, she is super down to Earth. Read that in full here.

I’m always reluctant to let anyone hear a recording until it’s ready because if it doesn’t make sense to me then I don’t see how it can to them either.

Focus on Jane Weaver

Released tomorrow is Modern Kosmology, the superb new studio LP from Jane Weaver on Fire Records. It's picking up some seriously glowing praise already, the most beautifully phrased so far is over on The Quietus

With one eye on the dancefloor and another on those sprawling existential questions we may never truly answer, Jane Weaver’s Modern Kosmology is a joyous relief to cynical cosmic vibes
— The Quietus

Jane has long been an artist we've admired and her back catalogue is an immaculate collection of intimate, woozy, krauty, home-spun, maximal pop music. She really is in the category we'd call a national treasure. 

Below you can watch a short video called ((Spectral Lines)) that gives insight into the recording process for Modern Kosmology.

We also never miss an opportunity to highlight that Jane Weaver released an album called Cherlokalate ten years back that has a song called Is Everyone Happy? ... to this day, it is one of the most evocative and singularly brilliant songs we've ever heard. You can listen on her Bandcamp page.

an album that demonstrates Weaver’s rare talent for a largely forgotten skill of the first psychedelic era

We could not be more honoured to welcome Jane to Totnes for the first time to play at Sea Change. She plays Saturday night on The Quietus stage. Huge thanks to both James at Fire Records and John at The Quietus who convinced Jane to re-book a holiday to fit us in... how could anyone ask any more than that? She is so legit.
